Just when I’m about ready to give up, science and Nature combine to give me a ray of hope for braindead morons known as Liberals or Progressives.
As I learned in an article from the Washington Post, even the brainless slimeball call learn!
Never in nature has a creature been more poorly served by its name than the lowly slime mold.
“Slime mold.” Sounds boring, right? Maybe a little gross? Maybe like you’d rather not be thinking about it right now, or ever?
Take, for example, the Physarum polycephalum, or “many-headed slime” (a much better name, by the way). It’s a single-celled organism with no brain to speak of, but it’s capable of solving mazes, maintaining a balanced diet, and even “designing” an efficient railway system.
It’s also capable of learning something new, researchers report this week in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B — a discovery that might help change our notion of what intelligence really means.
That’s has to make Conservatives feel good! If the lowly slime can work its way through a maze, surely there is a chance for Liberals. Let’s help them find a railway system to the light of Conservatism.
The article goes on to explain the problem that Liberals have with learning and comprehension:
Learning “is something that we thought was very complicated,” said lead author Romain Boisseau, a behavioral ecology student at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. “You know, it requires a lot of neurons and connections and a brain.”
The KEY is don’t give up. I have asked every Conservative to work with at least one Liberal between now and election time, and we can end the madness!
